**Definitions:**

**Newton Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **N/m, or Npm**): is a force in newton applied over a unit length in linear meter.

**Tonne Per Linear Meter** (abbreviations: **t/m, or tpm**): is a force in tonne applied over a unit length in linear meter.

## How to Convert Newton Per Linear Meters to Tonnes Per Linear Meters

*Example: How many tonnes per linear meters are equivalent to 16.66 newton per linear meters?*

As;

1 newton per linear meters = 0.0001124045 tonnes per linear meters

16.66 newton per linear meters = Y tonnes per linear meters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 16.66 times 0.0001124045 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 16.66 * 0.0001124045 / 1 = 0.00187265897 tonnes per linear meters

Answer is: 0.00187265897 tonnes per linear meters are equivalent to 16.66 newton per linear meters.
